I used to work for the original owner the food was always great it is even better now. I like the Jorge's in Midland on Big Spring that's the best always clean and super busy so you know it's good.

Our first time and everything was VERY good. Started out with margarita's, two sizes and you have to go with the large of course due to the value. Menu is extensive with multiples options for any desire. This restaurant is authentic with common menu choices that not all "gringo's" will eat but something for everyone. When plates arrived, all our... More

Staff is extremely incompetent. We ordered drinks, chips and queso. Then we ordered out meal. We got the wrong drinks, and then took our orders and said they'd bring us the correct drinks. We never got our drinks, but they did serve us a cold meal. Then they brought our queso out last with the check. Awful. It's too bad... More

If you like Margaritas, go here. The salsa and chips, pre-meal, are always fresh and good. However, the Mexican food is just a bit on the average side. Around 10 years ago, it seems like they took more pride in the food. Now, it just seems like, eh, whatever. Not horrible, but not the best either.

The salsa is very fresh...not too hot either. A variety of different Mexican food dishes. A bit pricier than most Mexican food restaurants in the area but GOOD!

This is my favorite place to eat in Midland. The food is consistently great. The margaritas are my favorite of anywhere in Texas. I like to go at least once a month or maybe even more.

On the Border compared to this place is a five star restaraunt! This place is absolutely disgusting and the food was also cold when brought to our table after waiting almost an hour!

We drove to Odessa for this restaurant because it was recommended by a friend. The food was good. We had to wait for about ten minutes for a table. Our drinks ran dry several times, and our server seemed to only be able to fill one glass or coffee cup at a time. I think she may have been new.
